Tea Time Tuesday End of September Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday End of September Edition…

If you have been following along you know that last week we took a break from Tea Time Tuesday because my nephew passed away. It has been a rough couple of days, but with the end of September approaching we are trying to get back into the swing of things. This week in math Jack is working on calendar activities, and has been struggling with how many days each month has. I figured it was the perfect time to bring out an old nursery rhyme for our featured poem this week. In addition to our featured poem, we also read all of our BookShark poems for this week.

Tea Time Tuesday- Pumpkin Edition

Welcome to another Tea Time Tuesday

This week we are continuing our tradition of ALL things fall! And that tradition called for a Tea Time Tuesday Pumpkin edition. What is fall without pumpkin treats? There is just something about this time of year that we can’t resist… I am loving all the cozy family times we have been having lately, and all the homemade snacks.

Tea Time Tuesday- Apple Pie Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Apple Pie Edition!

The weather has taken a turn here in Michigan, so we are enjoying all things “fall”… from fun fall decor to apple pie. We have lived in this house for a little over two years now, but never used our original wood burning fireplace before this week… I can’t believe we waited this long to fire it up! It has been amazing snuggling up in front of the fire with Ryan, the kids, and our two fur babies. Julia and her dog Henry even fell asleep in front of the fire the other night, which just melted my heart. Continue reading “Tea Time Tuesday- Apple Pie Edition”

Tea Time Tuesday… Back to School Edition

Welcome to another Tea Time Tuesday… Back to School edition!

Our dreary summer has come to an end, and the Raiche kiddos are getting back into the swing of things! I am very excited to kick off our 2017-2018 school year. This week I have chosen a poem talking about how a traditional classroom can take away the joy of learning. Homeschooling is NOT for everyone, but it certainly is the best fit for our family. I am thankful that I am able to be home with my children, so they can thrive in their own environment. Continue reading “Tea Time Tuesday… Back to School Edition”

Tea Time Tuesday-End of Summer Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday... End of Summer Edition!

Although there are still a few weeks before summer is officially over it truly feels like the end of summer to us... In a few days we will be starting the new school year, the weather has changed, and some of our trees have already lost their leaves. It has been a strange summer to say the least, but we are excited for all the fun things that fall brings.

Tea Time Tuesday-Brownie Edition

Welcome to  Tea Time Tuesday!

This week for Tea Time Tuesday we are talking all about “brownies”… The kind you eat and the folklore! Do your kiddos know what a brownie is? Mine didn’t, so we read a little about them here. Since a lot of our featured poems are fairly short, we are also reading a few selections from Emily Dickinson or Edgar Allan Poe each week. I think during our next library run I will pick up a few different poetry books to switch things up a bit. Continue reading “Tea Time Tuesday-Brownie Edition”

Tea Time Tuesday-Wind Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday!

I can’t believe another week has come and gone… I really don’t know where the time is disappearing to this summer! However, we are excited that it is time for another Tea Time Tuesday. The weather in Michigan has been crazy this year. I feel like we have been living in a windstorm ALL SUMMER, so I wanted to feature a poem about wind! Continue reading “Tea Time Tuesday-Wind Edition”

Tea Time Tuesday

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday… Strawberry Jam Edition

I don’t know how it is possible, but August is here and we celebrated with our very first poetry tea time. For years I have been talking about starting this tradition…. However doing and saying are two very different things! I am so happy that I finally stopped being the slacker that I am and kicked off August in this fun way. Check out what we did this week for Tea Time Tuesday below. Continue reading “Tea Time Tuesday”

Tea Time Tuesdays

Join us each week for Tea Time Tuesdays!

Summer is quickly coming to an end, and I am dreaming of our upcoming homeschool year. Like most homeschool mamas at this time of the year I have been busy setting goals, finalizing curriculum choices, and organizing our school room. During this process I realized that every year I say I am going to get my children into the kitchen more, but I never seem to follow through. This year that is going to change! Every Tuesday my kiddos will be in charge or preparing food and setting our table for Tea Time Tuesdays. Continue reading “Tea Time Tuesdays”
